Scott Servais Hired as Angels Assistant GM

Front Office Rock!

The new Los Angeles Regime of Anaheim continues to take shape as new GM Jerry Dipoto made his second significant hire of the week, naming former major league catcher Scott Servais his assistant General Manager.

Servais caught almost 400 games for the Chicago Cubs at the tail end of the Mark Grace - Ryne Sandberg years (career stats). At his best at the plate he was comparable to current players Rod Barajas and Yorvit Torrealba. He was originally drafted by the Mets in the 2nd round of the 1985 draft (they took Gregg Jeffries in the first round that year), the same round that the White Sox drafted current Halo broadcaster Jose Mota three picks ahead of the Expos taking Randy Johnson.

On the day that the death of pitching legend Bob Forsch was announced, Servais appears to be taking over ousted Angels assistant GM Ken Forsch's old job, complete with the official title of "Assistant General Manager, Scouting & Player Development". Since 2006, Mister Service had worked in the front office of the Texas Rangers as "Senior Director of Player Development".
